We've had a particularly cold and rainy spring but that hasn't stopped us from sipping the first rosés and whites of the season and it won't stop us from recommending our favorites and sending them your way! Old-vine pink Pinot noir from one of Oregon's pioneering wineries, Nebbiolo rosato from the mighty Columbia Gorge, my new house white wine of 2023, a zesty-fresh Pinot blanc from one of the best winemakers. We're gonna keep sipping these daily until the warm sunshine arrives and then...we'll be sipping them all summer, too. Grab our new favorites!
